Divine Intervention

Barry University Assistant Professor of Theology Sister Gloria Schaab, SSJ, has authored a book titled “The Creative Suffering of the Triune God: An Evolutionary Theology.”

Published by Oxford University Press and released September 18, the book details Schaab’s interpretation of the ongoing dialogue of theology and science concerning the problem of suffering. Schaab explores her proposal in three contexts – feminist theology, ecological praxis and pastoral ministry. Her book focuses on the work of scientist-theologian Arthur Peacocke, which claims that the triune God is intimately involved with the suffering of the cosmos.
